The next day, we left in the early morning to visit Grand Canyon National Park. There was two arrows (left/right) sign which road you want to go. The left arrow said ‘South Rim’ and The right arrow said ‘North Rim’. I was not sure which one so I looked at the road map to double check. The South rim was an answer because it led us to Hoover Dam/Las Vegas.

We entered the Grand Canyon National Park, we saw the rock tower. We quickly parked the car in the parking lot. We went inside and walked upstairs to the top of the rock tower to see huge the Grand Canyon.

It was so beautiful and awesome. The weather was perfect!

We drove and visited the Hoover Dam. We saw a huge dam! We walked and looked around the dam. It was nice sightseeing.

The weather was sunny and so hot! The temperature was 111 at 6pm. Imagine that?

We drove to Las Vegas which was about 20 minutes away from Hoover Dam.

The famous sign

We stayed at the Circus Circus Hotel for two nights. CHAMP! Anyway, we rested a few hours in the hotel room and decided to cruise around the city of Las Vegas durning the night to get idea what it looked like. Interesting! The next morning, we woke up early. We decided and walked a long way to see many cool buildings until late afternoon.

Hole in a sock: priceless

We survived through the hot weather! We really enjoyed it. In our opinion, Las Vegas is a place for adults, not kids.
